saying, the embassy of the united states in kay row condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt religious feelings of muslims as we condemn hurt thosecondemn efforts to offend believers of all religious. later, no one was hurt and protesters eventually disbanded. as that situation in egypt was winding down, the situation in libya was getting worse. so ten hours after the statement was issued in cairo at about 4:00 in the afternoon then attackers in libya entered the american consulate in benghazi and started firing. three americans were trapped inside including ambassador stevens. if this were not enough of a crisis going on, back at home mitt romney decides to weigh in before it's even clear what is going on in libya. so at 10:30 last night romney issues a statement attacking the cairo embassy's statement earlier, when those guys were just trying to diffuse the situation on the ground. romney said in his statement last night, it's disgraceful that the obama administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our top plow our diplomatic missions but
was only 5. my people were revolutionary refugees. they had to be fed by the united states government and housed by the united states government. i know what poverty is. i've been up through it. >> jennifer: george romney, a republican through and through who was not, like his son trapped in the bubble of wealth and privilege and who freely admits his family was helped by the u.s. government's social programs in their time of need. now many modern-day republicans are running away from romney's statement today. people like connecticut republican senate candidate linda mcmahon who said today "i disagree with governor romney's insinuation that 47% of americans believe they're victims who must depend on the government for their care." mcmahon may not want to suffer the political backlash. but she like many other republicans and fox news commentators, she has used the 47% line before. here she is earlier in this very campaign. >> i would like to see everyone pay their fair share. 47% of the people today don't pay

[ nervous ] i hope no one recognizes us... you...you think these disguises will... no. [ male announcer ] salty. sweet. >> freedom is under assault here. i mean they're taking away american's freedom on one of the most important decisions that americans make. >> pragmatic effect is the decision is there will be a black cloud over any prospect of economic recovery in the united states. >> jennifer: whatever. based on their level of vitriol you would think that rick perry and michele
of the united states. >> there is a coordinated effort to make it about romney and whether or not he should speak. whether or not he should say anything about it. whether or not it is presidential for romney. we're only supposed to have one president now. at times like this. well we don't have one unless romney speaks up. >> jennifer: so they were so happy. mission accomplished! for them. and therein lies the problem. while president obama and secretary clinton spoke about the crisis with steady, seriousness, they exuded calm, they had clarity and strength, mitt romney, by contrast, was prematurely hyperventilating, maybe in response to the most extreme voices in his party. his campaign was in panic mode. and an international crisis was brewing and who did he listen to? could it have been the likes of rush limbaugh and laura ing graham and other neocons on his team? president obama was presidential and strong. mitt romney and paul ryan looked like bit players in top radio's amateur hour. stature, diplomacy steadiness?
the industry gets embedded here in the united states. more of the wind energy development in republican districts is present. 81% of the wind energy development is in republican districts. so don't you think there could be bipartisan support for the production tax credit? >> there is in the senate -- senator grassley, senator moran and senator brown have been supportive. what is the production tax credit do for rural communities? it is a cash crop that's predictable every year. most of the wind blows in agricultural areas. we also have manufacturing states like yours in the midwest that are dying to regain a manufacturing footing and so again, i just -- this is -- beyond tone-deaf on the part of the romney campaign. let me say one other thing the wind industry doesn't expect to have the subsidy forever. they want it phased out. but it is a fledgling industry. it needs these incentives. they've been helpful in building our manufacturing base back to where we want it to be. >> jennifer: you personally have been testifying
are protesting? >> definitely built up resentment against the west and the united states exploding. another thing that may give people solace is some of these protests albeit explosive were relatively small. today's protest in cairo was about 2,000. last year you had hundreds of thousands. in sudan it was 5,000. it doesn't mean we shouldn't be alarmed, but they are not drawing everybody. >> jennifer: today the taliban attacked the allied base in afghanistan where prince harry is stationed. is that about him or the movie, or something else? >> it was absolutely about him. the taliban put out a statement saying we will kill prince harry. they were looking for him and going after him. >> jennifer: let's get to another really important nexus here which is iran and israel. first of all does this wave mean that iran is next to act up? >> no, i don't -- look you have had times where iran has had its own revolution in 2009. what iran could do is seize the distraction. the u.s. will be distractioned with this right now. there is an election and a major crisis in the middle east pr
is not enough to get him elected president of the united states, so he had to start off where he did, which was reforming and explaining the damage that has been done to the republican party and letting us know who he is. without doing that the next six weeks are completely unimportant to him. so we expect to see a little bit of a bump. one of the things i wanted to add, though this bump he receive is coming before barack obama speaks next week. he is a fabulous speaker. people like his wife and children, and the fact he is so supportive of women's rights in the workplace and reproductive rights, so i would think we would see any bump that mitt romney got this week probably evaporate after next week. >> jennifer: karl one more quick question, romney claimed that republicans had united behind the president following his election. take a quick listen. >> oh, god. >> jennifer: hang on. take a listen. >> romney: americans always come together after elections -- >> jennifer: well, i'm not sure if you caught it all but he was clearly saying that his party has supported the pres
of the united states, my father my hero, joe biden. [ cheers and applause ] >> i move to suspend the roll and nominate by acclaimation joe biden as the vice presidential candidate. [ cheers and applause ] >> jennifer: let me just say i love joe biden. that was him tearing up at the convention last night, as his son beau who is also the attorney general of delaware nominated his father his hero for a second term. the pundits have spent a lot of time rehashing the most fiery speeches, but there were also a lot of moments like that. here are some of our favorites. >> it's about whether we do for our fellow americans what my crew did for me, whether we'll look out for the hardest hit and the disabled whether we'll pool together in a time of need whether we'll refuse to give up until the job is done. >>> barack knows the american dream because he has lived it, and he wants everyone in this country -- everyone, so have the same opportunity no matter who we are, or where we're from or what we look like, or who we
't figure out a way to get more manufacturing jobs in the united states, i just might have to start yelling. plus, it's tough to turn on the tv and not hear about the 1% or the middle class. we're forgetting about another group in more ways than one. later, it amazes me that in a country of 300 million citizens, this election will come down to just a handful of voters in just a handful of swing states. this is "the war room" on >> jennifer: now to my point which is about my obsession i am obsessed, obsessed with cracking the code to getting more manufacturing jobs in the united states of america. i've been looking at the made in label of everything around this desk. my beautiful tigers cup made in china. my shirt my jacket, my shoes made in china. this computer, made in china. these pens, made in japan. this etch-a-sketch from ohio art made in china. my phone made in taiwan. my glasses made in denmark. it makes me so sad and frustrated that these products all around me support jobs overseas. i've been losing sleep ove
and cookie, too. i think having been a congressman, he's obviously united states senator now. he knows policy. he was a trade rep. he was a white house -- in congress. this guy knows his stuff. but i think interestingly apparently, he's somewhat of a method actor. he listened to tapes, for instance, of the books on tape of barack obama and he's really able to take on the effect and the cadence of the person he's playing. and he too has great bedside manner. he's somewhat of a prankster. he develops very warm relationships not only with republicans but democrats have nice things to say about him. >> jennifer: interesting because he was so close to being selected for vice president. i don't know that being a debate stand-in is a good second nod. but president obama is going to be heading to henderson nevada for three days of debate prep behind closed doors. when you and i helped to prepare joe biden i'm curious from your perspective, jill, what was the most surprising thing to you about that whole debate prep? >> th
of the united states, george washington, adams, jefferson madison all agreed on one thing. don't create political parties. don't especially create the kind of permanent factions that we have today. where democrats are always on one side and republicans are always on the other side. and they just simply are unable to come together. even on the most urgent issues to find a way to compromise and get something done. >> jennifer: well, we've polarization from the senate floor today. let's take a listen. >> the number one job of this congress domestically should have been more private sector jobs. the president's long-held view of redistribution as a goal for the government is not going to accomplish that. >> the president's put our entire economy in jeopardy in order to serve his own political interests. >> jennifer: it's just -- it is classic example of what goes on every single day on the floor. you think that goes against the principle of the founding fathers as you mentioned and separation of powers? >> the issue is not
liking his wife is not enough to get him elected president of the united states. he had to start off where he did, which was reforming and slaining the damage that's been done to the republican party and letting us know who he is. without doing that, the next six weeks are unimportant to him. we expect to see a little bit of a burch. one of the things i wanted to add though was that the bump he received was coming before barack obama speaks next week. barack obama is a fabulous speaker. he is a family man. people like his wife. people like his children. people like the fact that he is so supportive of women's rights in the workplace in addition to reproductive rights. i would guess that we're going to see whatever bump mitt romney got this week particularly among independents and women evaporate after the democratic convention next week. >> it will be interesting to see. karl romney also claimed at the beginning of his speech that republicans had united behind the president following his election. just take a quick listen. >> four years ago i know that many americans felt a fresh exc
: quickly moody's is warning that the united states is soon going to face a credit downgrade if they don't deal with this. what would that do to our retirement accounts and mutual funds and stocks if that hand? >> i'm not part of the rating agency. i sold my company to moody's so i have no insider information about the downgrade, but i read carefully what they say and pay close attention to it. and they are pretty clear if we get into next year and can't get a deal and do those things i discussed, they will probably down grade the debt. that won't cataclysmic, but it will hurt. they will download all of the debts. so we will see investment managers having to sell that debt, because they have contractors with investors saying that can't own debt at ratings that are lower than agreed. and that hurts everybody, 401k pension, because we all own stocks and bonds. so this is not a good thing. >> jennifer: all right. mark i really appreciate it. mark zandi, chief economist at moody's analytics. and up next, win the presidency, take back the house, keep the senate? we'll s
in the united states, governor, had more african-americans and latinos turn out to vote after the voter i.d. law had been put in place. >> i appreciate you trying to tow the party line, but i think it's really clear what the effect of these voter i.d. laws on. i want to get to affirm active action. you say we should end it, because it is taking us backwards rather than advancing people with color as they are unable to move forward without a crutch from the government. there is an affirmative action case before the supreme court now. do you think college admissions should be purely and testing and grades. >> i do. a college also has to take into account diversity. you want a college campus that is reflective of america. i'm also concerned you look back president kennedy said that race should have no form under the color of law in american life. i think unfortunately his desire to make sure that we had an equal application of the law regardless of your skin color has turned into a quota system. i am not in favor of quotas, of admitting x number of people based on the color of their skin. i'm stron
is the defense budget. >> jennifer: right. >> we spend more money the united states, the next 17 countries combined, 15 of the countries happen to be our allies. >> there's some room there. i think your point is a good one. easy to say -- we would cut. millions of dollars. it will sound specific. all they have to do is say we've done this, we've done that. we've done all of these things. republicans have done zero on the issue of new revenue. we've gone above and beyond. >> jennifer: this is the important point. when you answer a question in a debate, you say your point then you pivot to an attack. you always have to pivot to an attack. you want to get your opponent off of their game. >> this is a choice, not a referendum. >> jennifer: mark, you asked this question that you think governor romney could be concerned about. because you haven't been specific with how you would pay for your 20% across the board tax cuts, democrats say it would end up costing the middle class. specifically, i'm the moderator specifi
